O THOU, by whose all-bounteous hand
Hast all our fathers led ;
To thee address our prayer;

Ourselves we will resign;
And e'en our life is thine. DODDRIDGE

UR Father, thron'd above the sky,

To satisfy thy children's cries? 6 Yes, we will ask, and seek, and

To night, the view of glorious heaven. 4 He drives along those sparkling globes,
In circles of unerring truth;
And crowns them with eternal youth. 5 So will he crown the upright mind,
When life and all its toils are o'er :
To nesus, our exalted Lord

in heaven and earth ador'd, Fain would our hearts and voices raise
A cheerful song of sacred praise.
Are weak, and languishing, and low;
The theme demands immortal tongues.

The orders of their King,
Join in the praise they sing.

our noblest Let his assembled saints unite
Their harmony of tongues. 2 Great is the mercy of the Lord,
He gives his children food ; And, ever mindful of his word,
He makes his promise good. 3 lis Son, the great Redeemer, came

Wonders of grace to God belong..
Repeat his mercies in your song. 2 Give to the Lord of lords renown,
The King of kings with glory crown;
When lords and kings are known no more. 3 He built the earth, he spread the sky,
And fix'd the starry lights on high:
Repeat his mercies in your song.
He bids the moon direct the night:
5 The Jews he freed from Pharaoh's hand,
And brought them to the promis'd land;
Repeat his mercies in your song. 6 He saw the Gentiles dead in sin,
And felt his pity work within ;

From guilt, and darkness and the grave;
Repeat his mercies in your song. 8 Through this vain world he guides our feet,

“Hast made thy gospel known. 3 "The mysteries of redeeming grace
' Are hidden from the wise : “While pride and carnal reasonings join
“ To swell and blind their eyes.'
His great decrees fulfil,
